An Afternoom on Motobu Peninsula with Three Sisters
Normally I post something here daily.
A slight overdose of fun kept me from doing that last night so, I went home and crashed.
The hills are ablaze in brilliant colors this time of year.
So, yesterday, the wife, two of her sisters and I, went to check them out.
It's Hydrangea season, in Okinawa, right now.
Locally, these flowers are known as Ajisai.
Photo credits for some of these shots belong to the gals.
There's no telling who was doing the shooting with the Canon G12.
Give the women a camera and, head for the hills with my Pentax cameras was the plan.
Whoever shot this, should consider making a living with the camera.
The lighting, suited me best, looking back down the hill from the entrance.
Little did I know, one of the gals, was shooting me, with my own camera.
Er maybe, I'd have fixed my hair.
The highlight of any visit to the Ajisai garden has to be this sweetheart.
Mrs Uto Yohena, the woman who planted all these flowers, is almost 100 years old.
She remembers me, every time I see her.
Each year when we meet, I like to get a photo of her smiling.
And, I'll print it so, I can deliver it to her or, her family.
This year, someone came up with an idea.
The cameraman will go nuts, if you just flip him the peace sign.
All these gals are sweethearts but, one looks rather suspicious.
Hiking back down the trails a few more photos were taken.
It really was a beautiful day.
After leaving Yohena's Garden in Izumi, we drove to see the trees in Bise.
The three sisters wanted to go to dinner when we got back in Kin Town.
That's when, I came up with this plan.
If they dropped me and the cameras at my office, they could go do a Lady's Night.
Three cameras were downloaded.
And, I went home to sleep !
